MORRIS CHESTNUT has consistently portrayed powerful African American characters since his debut as "Ricky Baker” in John Singleton's "Boyz N the Hood.” He starred in the Twentieth Century Fox feature "Like Mike” starring opposite Bow Wow, as well as the Lion's Gate feature "Confidence” starring opposite Dustin Hoffman and Edward Burns. He can also be seen in the Screen Gems' romantic comedy "Breakin' All the Rules” opposite Jamie Foxx and will soon appear in "The Cave” for Lakeshore Productions, which just completed photography in Romania.

Chestnut starred opposite Alan Alda in the Showtime feature "The Killing Yard” which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. He played Bernard Stroble, an inmate on trial for the state prison murders of two fellow prisoners during the 1972 prison riots in "Atikka.” This true story takes place during his 1974 trial and focuses on his relationship between his legendary attorney Ernest Goodman (Alan Alda) and Stroble's decision to act as his own co-council.

He is well known for his role as "Lance” in Malcom Lee's "The Best Man” in which he portrays a hot pro running back at the top of his game, a role for which he earned an NAACP Image Award nomination. Also notable was his role in "The Brothers” in which he played opposite Bill Belamy, D.L. Hughley, and Shemar Moore — men who are four friends who begin to question relationships when one of their own gets engaged. He has also starred in such features as "G.I. Jane,” "Under Siege II,” "Dark Territory,” "Half Past Dead,” "Two Can Play that Game.” His television credits include "ER,” "Out All Night,” "C-16,” and "Scenes of the Crime.”
